Hi hooker,  if I were you I would give that cap one a little more aged maybe in a year or another
six months. When apping for Amex Delta and Green is probably are the easiest and Amex mainly
pulls EX.

How is your credit history? good payments... how long is it? I got an Amex Blue with a 710 score and a credit history of about 18 months on my longest card... which happens to be a CapitalOne $500 limit and they have never given me a CLI (I hate them)
The amex i got was a $3200 limit Smiley Happy made me happy anyway
